Very long day with a lot of time spent on the bus, but worth it. We got wonderful photos of the Andes.
We had a blast - so worth it
Wow what a value! A whole day trip up into the Andes climaxing at Christ of the Andes. Beautiful views and vistas everywhere. Our guide was well informed and friendly. The driver, quite expert. The high altitudes can make travelers a little sleepy but all in all a relaxing and stress free way to visit the top of the world.
If I could give this tour minus stars I would and if I could find a way to demand a refund I would. Not because of the places it goes to or the content of the tour which we didnt actually get to experience but for the discomfort! We were picked up from our hotel in a minibus that was already quite full. The only spare seats were at the back of the bus. Though legroom was limited it was bearable until we stopped to pick up two more passengers. It was impossible for 4 adults to fit in these seats. It was so uncomfortable and claustrophobic that we had to ask the bus to stop and get off. The guide was quite unsympathetic but she had the best seat on the bus! We went back to our hotel Finca Adalgisa and the receptionist was very helpful. He arranged a private driver to take us. The car was very comfortable and the driver spoke perfect English and was a qualified guide. If there were 4 passengers in the car the cost would have been cheaper than this trip. We had a great day in comfort and often were the only people at each of the stops which gave us a really personal experience. We saw our bus at the view point for Aconcagua but this was on the highway. Because we were in a car we were able to enter a small car park and take a short walk to a much better viewpoint. Our driver took us to a great place for lunch and helped us to get a really authentic lunch which was very good and great value. Our driver also seamed to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the best and cleanest bathroom facilities on route ! We have previously had good experiences on Viator tours and booked this because of our previous good experience but will think twice next time. My advice is dont do this unless you have a longing to travel for 10 -12 hours on a school bus. Take a private tour and if there are 4 of you.
This tour was amazing!
The cordillera was starkly spectacular, puente del Inca was stunning. Only negative was we were last picked up therefore at the back of the bus and so the English was difficult to comprehend. Also, take cash for lunch and shopping in Uspallata.
